More winterization going on
Today, I went to Home Depot for some supplies. I finally found dimable CFL's for the light over the kitchen table. I priced LED's after recently reading Frugal Queen's post, and as much as I love LED's, I can't stomach $15/bulb here in the USA. I also got more spray foam filler, more weather stripping (I attacked the large windows and 2 large double sliders in that side of the porch). I also bought some 80 inch long insulating curtain panels (vs buying thermal backed drapes which I can't find in a color I like nor a price I like). The length of these are perfect as there is baseboard heat below these windows. I am also thinking that when I move, I know that I can definately use these insulating panels again, where as a 5 set of 2 panels each drapes may/not get reused. This seems most practical. I like that there is a velco strip on one panel, to hold the 2 insulated panels closed. They are white, so asthetics aren't an issue.
